I made a sweater for Maus just before she was 2. It was the Little Hoodlum pattern by Julia Stanfield. That little golden yellow hoodie was worn all the time by Maus, and was then passed on to C, who still wears it just as much as she did.
Maus at almost 3, wearing the year-old hoodie.
Maus, 1 month shy of 5, still wearing the old gold hoodie…although her brother was wearing it more at the this point.
Such a versatile pattern I felt needed to be made again, in a larger size so that it could again start with Maus. Knowing that she had would have 2 boys following her in wearing the sweater I decided to make it in a pretty blue. A colour that was approved by Maus, but would also suit the boys coming up behind.
So that is what is on my needles this month…another Little Hoodlum, this time knit in Cascade 200 Heathers in “Summer Sky”.
